Today on the 2 o'clock break we continue to explore holiday samples.

Today's song is a holiday track, but it's source if far from a Christmas tune.   In 1997, Volume 3 of A VERY SPECIAL CHRISTMAS was released.  

This album featured a version of "Santa Baby" with an all star cast of rappers. Rev Run of Run DMC,  Mase, Puff Daddy, Snoop Doggy Dogg, Salt-n-Pepa, Onyx & Keith Murray  all rap on this track.



I was amazed when I looked at the song writing credits and saw Lauren Hill and Wyclef Jean.  I then found that the main beat for this track, was actually from a Fugees song.

Check out the beat on this remix of "Nappy Heads."
